It actually includes linux-next and Linus's tree. -mm is based on the
last-released kernel version (2.6.28, 2.6.29-rc1, etc) and includes
origin.patch (takes it up to current Linus) and linux-next.patch (takes
it up to current linux-next).

The many trees in linux-next are actually based on current mainline.
So if you can prepare and maintain a tree based on current mainline,
Stephen could integrate that into linux-next, hopefully.
